  1. Q Is this powder coated? or just painted on? answer now

    This product does not come powder coated - it is a pre-painted finish galvanized steel

  2. A

    Hello Jonathan, if the vent was installed perfectly flush, this should not typically happen - if the vent is installed in a way that exposes the damper directly to the wind, we would recommend adding a small weight to the damper to help with this.

    Good product

    Well worth the price, I am pleased with this product!

    Was what I was looking for, but cost more than I think it should. I can purchase slightly smaller ones for $14 at Home Depot. I needed a slightly larger one, but paying more than twice as much seems like a lot. Ordering was easy and it was delivered pretty quickly.

  4. Austin Chapin (verified owner)

    All was as expected except 2 things.

    1- I Thought I ordered one of the 4inch vent hoods without a screen. Both came with. No worries as it was easily cut out with a utility knife to suit the clothes dryer application.

    2- I was disappointed that the hoods didn’t have pre-drilled holes for fastening to the building. Again no worries, as it was easily remedied.

    Final note. I would likely search elsewhere for the product next time. Main reason being price point and initial expectations of products.

  5. Kevin W. (verified owner)

    I would have given this five stars, but for the fact that the dampener does not close/ lay flat against the unit and being Oceanside get a lot of wind action and the hood could be a little more protective for my needs but other than that a well made product which is precise in measurement as using a 6” hole cutter through 4” thick wood was a tight and snug fit.
